My Experience with Accutane

I have been visiting this site for about 2 years and around July I decided to start accutane. Honestly, it was probably the best decision I ever made for my skin. By the time I left for college, I was almost 100% clear and now at the end of my 4th month on 40 mg/day, I am completely clear. I had moderate to severe acne for most of my senior year. Usually on this board you only here about the problems with accutane. I have had almost no side effects, the only one being dry nose. The only suggestion I would make is don't let your derm start you at too high of a dose. I was started at 20 mg and worked up to 40 and am planning to remain at 40 until the end of my treatment. Don't give up trying to fight your acne, there is hope! I'm more confident with myself now than I have been in almost a year!
